Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

The school is so terrible that it's unbelievable. The show tries to do too many things and appeal to everyone at once. It wants to appeal to younger kids with a school that has robot battles, but it also wants to have mature themes like discrimination and classism. The tone is just all over the plac...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

I can't see myself continuing with Mercury.

This is just another shonen anime set at a middle school with battles. It's like 99% of the other shonen anime out there. Bandai has made Gundam generic.

Hard to take this show seriously when episode 2 continues to introduce cartoonishly evil villains.

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

The tone of the first episode was all over the place. Nothing like the prologue. Did someone decide to turn it into a school comedy at the last second?

Are barely comprehensible main characters all the rage with young people now?

Those were my gripes with Delta as well.

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I just binge watched the series and felt I wasted my time. There's no reason to watch Delta if you've already seen Frontier. Everything about Frontier was better: the mecha combat, the characters, the songs, etc. Delta was too formulaic. You just knew Roid was going to end up being the big bad from ...

Display cases for models and figures.

I have quite a number of models and figures, but it's a shame I can't display them because they get dusty too quickly on shelves and require constant cleaning. So now, all of my beautiful models stay in their boxes, unable to be appreicated. I was wondering what people use to display their models an...

And the Thrones weren't the ones who killed Graham's flight instructor either. It took place before the series.

Can someone please explain to me what Wang Lu Mei's role was in Celestial Being, the Trinity group in season 1 and the Innovators? Was she an information source, strategist, etc? I still have no idea why each group keeps dealing with her and trusts her. It appears that she's just some brat who wants...

This is what they should do for all new Gundam series ...

While the writers and directors focus on the story and characters, have the animators from the Super Robot Taisen series handle the battle animations. Just look at how awesome their work is:

Heh, from the previews I see we'll have the staple two-enemy-pilots-stranded-on-a-deserted-island-where-they-form-a-relationship episode. :)

And OMG that bastard slapped Sergei! He deserves to be shot in the head with a beam rifle while falling out of an airplane :evil:

Hmm, I think Saji will end up piloting the 00, but will be reluctant initially because of what happened to Louise. I'm also guessing Nena will be his mentor while Saji is coming to grips with the Gundam. well, let's just say that you don't have a future in storywriting. i 2nd that opinion EDIT: Thi...

I was considering getting this over the 1/100 model kit, but now I'll have to think over it.

I guess Bandai is trying to catch up to Revoltech in terms of the articulation on their action figures.

Things I loved: - The added effect of Ozma's gatling gun pod opening up. - The squid-like decoys the aliens use to counter missles. - The red alien has its own version of gerwalk mode with insect wings! - How those jet pack suits double as controls/escape pods for the Valkyries.

Exia left GN beam daggers on the Hellions, I hope either side will be smart enough to retrieve them. Heh, nicely spotted! Does anyone else question the purpose of having the 2 GN Blades? What can those 2 blades do that the GN Sword/Gun plus 1 GN Blade can't that warrants discarding the extra shield...
